Joining the quest to rebuild the Legion and retake the Kingdom of Ehb in Obsidian’s Dungeon Siege III, Katarina combines her father’s mastery of firearms with her mother’s witchcraft to devastating effect.
Sorry if that headline brought up bad memories for anyone. Cavia’s Bullet Witch left a bad taste in many people’s mouths, promising a sexy combination of magic and gunplay but delivering a steaming pile instead. PlatinumGames’ Bayonetta worked hard to give gun-wielding witches a good name, nearly erasing Cavia’s crapfest from our collective minds.
And then I go and drag it back up again.
Look on the bright side: There’s no way Dungeon Siege III could be nearly as bad as Bullet Witch. The developers would have to actively try to be horrible.
Obsidian Entertainment’s take on Gas Powered Games’ dungeon crawler is headed to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in May.
